My students love to draw, so we use step-by-step drawing activities as a vehicle to inspire our writing!

This is a free sample of my directed drawing sets with differentiated writing prompt printables! This set features simple step-by-step directions to draw a cute puppy.

The drawing look adorable displayed together on a bulletin board, but the writing components are perfect for independent literacy centers, small group work, whole class art lessons and no-prep sub tubs. I also send these home for extra writing practice with parents.

Step by step drawing promotes success, and this feeling of pride makes even my reluctant writers excited to write about the little animals they have created!

The writing templates are carefully designed with format that supports emergent writers. There are also differentiated writing templates to challenge more advanced writers (or the same students later in the school year).

I hope you enjoy drawing this puppy along with your students!

If you enjoy directed drawing with your students, there are many more available, including a Full Year set of independent drawing and writing for your literacy center. CLICK HERE to see the ENTIRE YEAR COLLECTION which will save the equivalent of many sets for free!

Each set includes:

*A poster with step-by-step directions to complete a cute drawing. These can also be laminated for an instant directed drawing center!

*A directed drawing guide with an empty frame to draw in and cut off to keep the drawing.

*A comic-style writing template to focus on dialogue.

*A sentence writing template with self-editing checkboxes

*A supported creative writing template for simple sentences about the animal.

*A supported frame for creating a simple story about the animal.

*A blank writing template for early writers (room for 3 or 4 sentences)

*A blank writing template for advanced writers (room for 10-12 sentences) and also perfect for writing poems!

These are perfect for NO PREP whole class directed drawing, small groups, independent literacy centres, sub tubs or even a fun way to do home writing practice with the family!

During reporting conferences, I sent home a package of these writing prompts with students who needed to work on their writing and parents were happy to support writing at home with these cute sets!

Many of the images used in the directed drawing sets are also available as clip art sets! You can find them HERE
